-Boot Camp Butt-Kickin’ Week II!-
Week II for Boot Camp is underway!
Monday’s workout was tough. Add to this the fact that most of the bootcampers had a case of the “Mondays,” and you’ve got a pretty challenging hour!
I have to commend each of the ladies who participated. They stuck it out and no one complained about a thing! Mondays are hard enough as it is!
Monday’s workout consisted of a five minute general warm-up of jogging and easy speed ladder. After this, we went through the dynamic warm-up/yoga medley I concocted last Thursday.
Next on the hit list was a “classroom” circuit to focus on basic strength exercises. We worked on squatting, lateral reaching lunges, pushups, and dips. I want the ladies to feel comfortable performing the basic movements as well as progressions with each!
After working on the basic bodyweight exercises, we went through a metabolic circuit made up of rope alternating waves, burpees, miniband lateral walks, kb swings, jumping jacks, and rope in & out waves. Two times through this butt-kicker and that was plenty!
To wrap things up, we went through some core work…planks with hip swivels and marching bridges.
Then it was time to stretch!
What a great feeling!
Rain or shine, we are working out this evening! I am planning on it still raining at 6:00pm, so we will be working out underneath the gazebo!
On another note, “Outside the Box” has passed 15,000 hits! I am already receiving great feedback on MTM 1.0! More to come!
